Gross misconduct

Gross misconduct claims can lead to costly litigation, to be avoided if at all possible. We give focused advice on how to deal with allegations of under-performance, sometimes in conjunction with probationary periods, potential misuse of funds or behaviour that is not appropriate in the employment context.

Our aim is to ensure that expense is kept to a minimum but that the position of employers or employees is secured and, where appropriate, compensation is awarded where it is justifiable.

How we help:

  • Assessing the seriousness of the conduct alleged and advising accordingly
  • Advising on disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • Assisting in preparing appeals
